The Daily Platter is the blog of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, located in Phoenix, Arizona.
St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance has always been committed to ensuring that Arizona families in need are able to celebrate the holidays together with the comfort of a traditional meal.
Last year, your donations allowed St. Mary’s to reach out to 16,000 families across the state by distributing holiday food boxes, more than 160,000 pounds of produce and 16,000 of turkeys. St. Mary’s estimates last year’s pre-Thanksgiving food distribution provided meals for as many as 50,000 people!
St. Mary’s is asking the public to once again help stock our shelves and spread the joy of the holidays for others. Our seventh annual Super Saturday holiday food drive will take place on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, Nov. 23, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at St. Mary’s locations in Phoenix and Surprise as well as participating Albertsons food locations around the state. (see map below)
Holiday meats (turkey and ham) are high on the list of requested food, but all non-perishable food items and monetary donations will be gratefully accepted. Look for our signature St. Mary’s refrigerated trucks and our 6-foot inflatable turkeys at the donation sites!
There is something special about gathering around the table with family and friends for the holidays. Together we can give other Arizona families the chance to make the season memorable.
